A Life in Travel is a podcast series celebrating travel as a way of life. It’s stories of cool people doing cool stuff in a cool industry, folks who’ve built lives in travel and those whose lives have been changed by travel.


It is created and hosted by Yeoh Siew Hoon, who’s been writing about travel for as long as she can remember. Growing up on the island of Penang, Malaysia, she saw firsthand how travel changed her island and the lives of local people who worked in and around tourism and was curious to learn more about the industry.


Getting her grounding in mainstream journalism where she reported on crime, weddings and funerals (sin, love and death), she moved into travel and worked on travel trade publications across Asia. In 2005, she founded WiT (Web in Travel), a news and conference platform, to focus on travel tech and now she combines a love for travel and tech with her love for journalism and storytelling.


Season 1 is brought to you by Expedia Group –
